Individual own data


I picked up last year that Tantek was using his personal website to author all his data from.  He is a champion of ‘fighting for the user’ but my initial take on this was that I need an ultra smart authoring tool to cater for all those publishing activities I can perform today and more and more tomorrow.  However, use third party tools then the data is then ‘owned’ by that service.  However, for some you will need to use local tools to get the data to the service e.g. hardware, camera and local uploading tool to get it to e.g.   so I will have a local copy (my pc, Sony, local software microsoft and online yahoo flickr) so I need lots of local tools to get to the online service that now ‘owns’ my data!  This is a fascinating tension and a couple of blog post give th arguments, Decentralized tools and self aggregate, Zeldman and Tanteks, self publish and copy everywhere.

A conference is coming up in June this year, the IndieWeb unconference in Portland, USA for those fighting for individuals to own their data.

    page or linkedin profile?
